The members of the Galesville Heritage Society invite you to explore their historic village. First settled in 1654 on the banks of West River, Galesville and its history are fundamentally linked to the Chesapeake Bay.

Native Americans, English settlers, African slaves, German immigrants, wealthy vacationers, and recreational boaters have all played a part in Galesville's history. Locals have earned their living fishing, crabbing, oystering, farming, and running small businesses. Some commute to Annapolis, Baltimore, and Washington for work. Though the people and their vocations change, Galesville's strong sense of community endures. [photo]
